The Ghanaian government has decided to go in for a bulletproof glass curtain for the parliament. The idea sounds stupid and is useless so far as the nation has other pressing needs and is struggling to resolve them.
It’s only a father who has been able to take care of his children that afterward can decide to feed his dog from a golden plate. Going in for a bulletproof glass curtain now as we stand as a nation is not only a stupid idea but a selfish one.
When people are dying as a result of bad roads, you’re thinking of going in for bulletproof glass curtain. When those few hospitals you have are in poor conditions you’re thinking of bulletproof glass curtain.
Instead of solving the problems the double-track system has brought you’re thinking of going in for a bulletproof glass curtain. When people in certain districts did not vote in the just ended assemblyman elections due to neglect by government in terms of development, you’re going in for a bulletproof glass curtain. Oh Ghana government! What should be done to you?
If it is for prayer that you need to wise up and work, Ghanaians have done that enough but you remain the same. This means that it is not prayer that you lack but excuse my words, “common sense.” Selfish people. Why don’t you think of paper bulletproof for the Ghana cedis which is suffering?
Why don’t you people think of bulletproofing the economy of Ghana? Why don’t you think of bulletproofing the whole of Ghana against poverty? I don’t think the bulletproof glass curtain is a necessity for us as Ghanaians now. Do what is important first, dear parliamentarians.
Mike, Nana Addo, Ghana does not belong to you!
